Description / Dahlia 'Fleurel' Bulb

The Dahlia 'Fleurel' is an indispensable gem for any cutting garden, boasting majestic ivory-white blooms that unfold from primrose-yellow buds. This variety is a marvel of horticulture, enhancing the beauty of any garden or vase arrangement with its striking double blooms. The Fleurel dahlia, known for its large "dinnerplate" size, captures the attention of all onlookers, its blooms as broad as a dinner plate itself.

An informal decorative dahlia by classification, 'Fleurel' carries an air of elegance and grandeur that belies its designation. From midsummer to mid-fall, this dahlia variety outshines and outlasts most others, possibly delighting in the companionship of nearby Shasta daisies. The transition of colors from the purest white at the petal edges to a creamy ivory at the center only adds to its allure. These blooms are not only a spectacle in the garden but also maintain their splendor in a vase, offering long-lasting beauty.

Dahlia 'Fleurel' has a compact habit, standing upright at about 3 feet tall and spreading to 2 feet wide, presenting numerous blooms against a backdrop of toothy dark green foliage. The plant thrives under full sun, benefiting from heavy feeding, abundant water, and a spacious spot in the garden, shielded from harsh winds and rain, to support its lavish flowerheads.

As with all dahlias, 'Fleurel' is a tender perennial, hardy in Zones 8-10. To enjoy its grandeur year after year, gardeners in cooler zones should dig up and preserve the dahlia tubers before the first frost, ensuring a repeat performance of 'Fleurel's' breathtaking display each spring.

Incorporating Dahlia 'Fleurel' into your garden or floral designs not only brings an element of sophistication but also a promise of enduring beauty and charm. Its unparalleled blooms make it a must-have for any enthusiast seeking to elevate their garden or home with natural elegance.

Dahlias come in a wide variety of sizes, shapes, and colors. Dahlias are grown from tubers, which are similar to bulbs, so they're easy to plant. Follow our expert's advice on how to plant and care for dahlias in our Dahlia Care Guide. To learn more about dahlias, read our blog All About Dahlias.

NOTE: In Zones 3-7, the bulbs will need to be lifted before the first frost and overwintered inside. However, dahlias can be grown as annuals in all Zones.
